The Supreme Court arguments over the legality of same-sex marriage was punctuated by a nutjob leaping up from his seat and screaming, “The bible teaches us that if you support gay marriage you will burn in hell!”
Sure thing, Mister!
The outburst happened about 30 minutes into the arguments. One wonders whether the Catholic conservative justices were given pause by the extreme nature of the views expressed by religious conservatives generally, which not surprisingly were pretty far removed from reality.
Security escorted the protester from the court house. But the crazy didn’t end there. It continued all morning on Twitter. Fortunately, Twitter was ruled by proponents of equality.

Prov 29:2 “…when the wicked rules, the people groan…” Could this be why it appears America is coming apart at the seams?
